The Divorce and Beyond Podcast with Susan Guthrie, Esq.

Nationally recognized family law attorney, mediator and award-winning podcaster, Susan Guthrie is at it again! After guiding countless numbers of people through the perilous world of divorce—and speaking to a podcast audience of over 4 million listeners—she’s bringing you the “The Divorce & Beyond Podcast” to help you thrive in your life BEYOND divorce!

In this very special episode, Susan Guthrie speaks with the leading high conflict divorce expert in the world, Attorney, Mediator and Therapist, Bill Eddy, who recently released the updated version of his seminal book, Splitting: How to Protect Yourself When Divorcing a Narcissist or Borderline, authored with Randi Kreger (Stop Walking on Eggshells).

Are you divorcing someone who is making the process as difficult and drawn out as they possible can?  Are they sending you nasty emails, falsifying the truth, putting your children in the middle, abusing you, or abusing the system? Are they “persuasive blamers,” manipulating and fooling court personnel to get them on their side? Then you need the NEW and updated version of Bill Eddy's groundbreaking book, Splitting: How to Protect Yourself When Divorcing a Narcissist or Borderline!  Bill returns to Divorce & Beyond to help you understand what you are dealing with and how to best protect yourself, and your children, when caught up in the emotional storm of divorce with a high conflict personality.

In this episode, Susan Guthrie speaks with Therapists, Carol Hughes and Bruce Fredenburg, authors of "Home Will Never Be the Same Again: A Guide for Adult Children of Gray Divorce," about the effects of parental divorce on adult children, and how the negative repurcussions can be minimized.

It is no secret that gray divorce is on the rise world-wide.  In fact, divorce among those who have been married for 30 years or more or who are divorcing later in life, is one of the largest segments of those who are divorcing today.  Much has been written about the unique difficulties faced by those who divorce close to or during retirement and after long-term marriages, but there is a forgotten segment of people who are deeply impacted by the divorce - the adult children whose parents are going through a gray divorce.

Carol Hughes and Bruce Fredenburg, both family therapists, collaborative professionals and mediators, have done a deep dive into this topic with years of personal experience with patients and families as well as a great deal of research which they have distilled into a ground-breaking new book, "Home Will Never Be the Same Again: A Guide for Adult Children of Gray Divorce."  It is easy to believe that children who are adults, perhaps with families of their own, will have little to no impact when their parents divorce but the reverse is actually true.  Carol and Bruce provide guidance for parents, children and even therapists in their book and this episode provides insights and tips into this growing paradigm!

To enter to win one of 5 FREE Audible copies of the book, please send an email to Carol Hughes at drcarolhughes@me.com and mention "Divorce & Beyond!"

In this episode, Susan Guthrie speaks with leading family law attorney and author, Ashley Nicole Russell about how her experience of as a child of a toxic divorce turned her into a tireless crusader to help families restructure through the process with dignity, privacy and self-determination without ever having to go to court.

Ashley Nicole Russell says she had a fairly normal childhood, at least that is, until her parents' vicious divorce and never-ending cycle of conflict "cut the roots out from under her."  Today, Ashley Nicole no longer has a relationship with her parents, at least not right now, but her experience has made her a leader in the world of family law.  Collaborative divorce is yet another method for couples to utilize when going through a divorce.  The collaborative process is predicated upon compiling a curated integrative team to support the family and to help forge a new path forward for all.  A principal concept of a collaborative divorce, is that no one need go to court at all and that all issues be resolved cooperatively.

Hear more from Ashley Nicole Russell in this episode and find out from one of the leading collaborative attorneys in the country why you and your family should not HESITATE to COLLABORATE!

In this very special episode, Susan Guthrie speaks with the leading high conflict divorce expert in the world, Attorney, Mediator and Therapist, Bill Eddy, who shares tips and insights from his new book, Mediating High Conflict Disputes, which flips the long held belief that you have to litigate these cases on it's head!

For years it has been the industry belief that divorces involving one or more high conflict people cannot be mediated and that litigation is the only way forward.  In fact, Bill Eddy, the world's leading expert on high conflict divorce, thought this was true himself but after 40 years as a therapist, attorney and mediator he now knows better.  Bill has determined that high conflict divorces CAN be mediated moreover, they SHOULD be mediated rather than litigated.

In his latest book, Mediating High Conflict Disputes, Bill sets out his revolutionary methods for mediating with high conflict parties in a book that will help both mediation professionals as well as those facing the divorce process.  Bill's effective method for mediating high conflict disputes involves flipping some long-standing mediation norms upside down but his methods work and are a lifeline for those who want to end the ongoing conflict cycle of a high conflict litigated divorce.

This episode will change the way you approach high conflict divorce forever!  Be sure to listen today!

In this episode, Susan Guthrie speaks with Storey Jones, Founder of dtour.life, an innovative and easy to use platform that helps you tame the chaos and overwhelm of the life detour called divorce!

Storey Jones went through her own 7-year divorce ordeal several years ago and she came out of it with one certainty and that was that "no one should have to go through what she went through in her divorce!"  Storey has spent the years in between examining the obstacles that she faced and focused on creating a technology solution to address each one and so, dtour.life was born.  In this episode, Storey walks us through those divorce obstacles and how you can tackle them!

More information about this week's Special Guest, Storey Jones:  

Been there. Done that. Survived and thrived. In 1998 Storey Jones married a technology entrepreneur. By 2001 his company had executed a successful IPO and then an accounting scandal brought everything crashing down leaving her in a highly complex seven-year legal quagmire that included every unimaginable financial and emotional challenge including a protracted high-conflict divorce and custody battle. Though she lost everything including her home, possessions, savings & retirement, she gained a purpose. She recognized the glaring chasm between the human experience of divorce and the legal system; she developed a new business model as a divorce consultant to assist men and women in becoming far more informed, prepared and supported as they navigate their own unique processes. She also worked closely with divorce legal teams to help their clients be better prepared participants in their own divorce.

After well over a decade as a divorce consultant in the San Francisco Bay area, Storey has now leveraged that experience to build the first holistic end-to-end platform for divorce to bring innovation and technology to an outdated system. She is determined to change the experience by providing education and smart efficiency with expansive day-to-day tools that are designed so both clients and professionals can seamlessly work on and understand the same financial and other case-related data. dtour.life is designed from the ground up to fundamentally redefine this life transition for both spouses and professionals.

Prior to founding Lemon Tree Advisors and dtour.life, Storey was president of Addis, a bay area brand strategy and design firm where for 13 years she was integral to its growth and vision. Storey has a B.A. from Colgate University.

In Part Two of this Special Two Part Episode, Susan Guthrie speaks with Laura Friedman Williams, Author of the soon to be released (June 10th) book, Available: A Memoir of Sex and Dating After a Marriage Ends which will make you laugh and make you cry and most importantly, will give you hope!

Laura Friedman Williams truly thought she had the perfect marriage of 27 years. The perfect family and the perfect life and then one night, by the glow of the light from her husband's cell phone, it all came crashing down as she faced the truth that her husband was in love with someone else.  Suddenly she faced a life that included a future that was unknown but also a rewriting of her own history of the marriage she thought she had versus the marriage she now faced.  Laura set out to redefine her life, explore her sexuality and found herself along the way and she shares it all, and I do mean all, with us in her first novel, Available, launching June 10, 2021. 

In Part One, Laura and Susan delve into some of the deeper topics of the betrayal and pain of an unepected divorce but here in Part Two we get to the "fun stuff" and Laura shares some of the lighter and sexier moments along the way.  You definitely don't want to miss this so listen today!

More information about This week's Special Guest, Laura Friedman Williams:

Laura Friedman Williamsis a native New Yorker whose writing credits consist of countless PTA newsletters and program notes for talent shows and school auctions, as well as ghostwritten bar mitzvah speeches for many of her friends. Her wit and wisdom have not yet made it to a larger audience, but her years spent raising children and running events at her children’s schools have kept her writing steady and sharp. She credits her degree in English from Washington University and the ten formative years she spent in book publishing – first in Subsidiary Rights at Warner Books (now Grand Central Publishing) and then at Henry Holt & Company, then as a book scout and finally as a literary agent – for giving her a deep love and respect for the written word. She credits the break-up of her marriage for finally giving her the subject matter about which she both needed and wanted to write. She lives in downtown Manhattan with her three children.
